Song of the Week - Spinning Wheel by Blood, Sweat & Tears
Blood Sweat & Tears got their start in 1967, just about the same time as Chicago. Both bands were similar in that their sound was a fusion of rock, jazz and blues. It was quite innovative at the time. I loved the first 3 Chicago albums and I loved this album by BS&T. But I lost interest in both over the years. BS&T are still touring, although it doesn't look as iff they've produced an album of new material since 1980, and no new albums at all since about 1995. According to Wikipedia, BS&T has had 132 members over the years.
